Mad March is here, and don’t we love it! And we love the way our participating Eat local SA venues get behind so many artists and shows at this time of year, serving you entertainment, inspiration and sheer joy alongside their fantastic food.
Full on Fringe
Eat Local SA venues all over town are supporting artists for this year’s Adelaide Fringe. We like:
- Enjoy a restorative brekkie bowl and explore the Paint, Draw Stitch exhibition of wearable art at Brick+Mortar Creative.
- Join the fun with ADELOL – A Heaps Good History live podcast or Baby Bi Bi Bi at the Crown & Sceptre Hotel (just one other word for you on this one – steak. ‘Nuff said).
- Their dedication to gin is only matched by their dedication to supporting the folks who make us laugh at The Howling Owl, with 10 comedy artists adding fun to an already very happy place to be.
- Savour the Adventures of Improvised Sherlock Holmes, 1900-Lisa-Skye, Tim Ferguson or any of more than 20 performers throughout the Fringe along with local produce-inspired dishes on the menu at the Wined Bar at the National Wine Centre.
- Share the Prancing Pony’s love of all things festival and local – the show is called Granny Flaps – These Lips Don’t Lie and the food is fast, fun, fresh and perfectly matched to the Pony’s eclectic brews.
- Venture into music therapy with the Shamanic Cacao Ceremony at Eat at Whalers, and enjoy the ocean views along with a platter loaded with fantastic local produce.
- Pane et Latte will welcome you with Southern Italian passion, an all-day breakfast/brunch menu and the challenge to see the picture behind the picture in Luku Kuku’s exhibition Darbism
- Pop in for lunch at Restaurant 1873 at the Morphettville Racecourse and consider an evening combining drama, romance and… knitting at the South Australian Jockey Club at A Stitch in Time: A Knitting Cabaret.
But pace yourself. The Adelaide Festival is just about to start. In 2019, the Festival has again teamed up with some great restaurants to offer great value meal deals so you can enjoy some fantastic food and not fret about getting to your show on time. Our pick is Rigoni’s Bistro where you can get a 25% discount for early reservations and they will have you well-fed and on your way by 7.15pm Monday-Saturday. And if you plan to be part of the Palais’ last appearance on the River Torrens, you will be able to feast on a wide selection of SA produce in The Starlight Lounge.
Serve South Australia at Home
You wouldn’t be looking at this website if you weren’t (like us) a huge fan of the enormous range of food and beverages produced right here in South Australia.
We know you already have your favourite brands that you continue to support, but there’s always something new going on in our state so we thought it was high time we shared this handy list of South Australian brands to watch out for next time you are out shopping. Every dollar you spend buying South Australian makes a significant difference by supporting jobs – so you can feel good about feeling well-fed.
